About Captain Tom & Crew

Captain Tom's First Mate

Captain Tom & First Mate, Ruth Katherine, met in 2000 in a Yahoo Internet chat room. Ruth was employed as a Nurses Aid (STNA) and Captain Tom was in a Business Management career.

In 2003 they were married at St. Thomas More Roman Catholic Church in Brooklyn Ohio. After marriage, Captain Tom entered technical training for computer repair while Ruth continued her career as a STNA at various nursing homes in northeast Ohio.

Captain Tom completed his A+ Certification in late 2003 and leaped into a private business as an entrepreneur. The computer repair and refurbishing business became so successful that Ruth changed her STNA career and joined Captain Tom full time. Refurbishing & repairing computers, selling them at affordable prices to lower income families was both lucrative and personally rewarding.

Captain Tom & Ruth are Harley riders.
